Meghaa Gupta


Meghaa Gupta’s exploits in history are the outcome of an irrepressible urge to contextualise the challenges of the present with the past and make greater sense of the times we live in.

She works in children’s publishing and firmly believes that all change begins with getting children to read books that demystify the world and its infinite possibilities.

Meghaa has contributed to the history book On this Day (Dorling Kindersley, 2021) and is the author of After Midnight: A History of Independent India (Puffin, 2022), Unearthed: An Environmental History of Independent India (Puffin, 2020) and A Home of Our Own (Tulika, 2018).

She curates the children and youth section of the online magazine Sustainability Next and is a co-founder of the Greenlitfest.
